RM 70 MILLION TO RETRAIN JOBLESS

SHAH ALAM: The Government has approved a RM70mil grant to retrain 10,000 unemployed graduates, said Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam. He said the grant would be used to train them in skills like communication, language and creative thinking.
“Some have good qualifications but their hurdle is language. So, we want to train them in English,” he said.
He said this during a press conference after opening a training and consulting agency at Glenmarie on Wednesday. He added that the training courses would be carried out over a period of two to three years. “We want to make our unemployed graduates more marketable,” he said.
He said graduates who were unable to land a job were encouraged to register with the Human Resources Ministry to be retrained. He said priority is given to those who have been jobless for more than a year.
Meanwhile, Sarawak Assistant Minister for Industrial Development Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman said Sarawakians need not worry about unemployment because the Sarawak Corridor for Renewal Energy (SCORE) would create some 1.6 million jobs by 2030.
“About 82,000 engineers and technicians and 217,000 semi-skilled workers are needed by 2030,” he said when opening a regional engineering conference yesterday.
Organised by Universiti of Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas), the conference themed “Sustainable Engineering Infrastructure: Development and Management” will see 180 papers presented by local and foreign participants.
Daud said the implementation of SCORE would speed up the state’s industrial and economic transformation.
He said SCORE had identified 10 priority industries, including aluminium and related downstream industries.
“Through SCORE, 30,000MW of electricity will be produced mostly through the implementation of hydroelectric dam projects,” he said.
To achieve sustainable growth, Daud said the state had to strengthen partnerships with others to improve knowledge and expertise among its 2.4 million people.
